The Term

Originally this term was coined to criticize the action of  U.S. Senator Joseph . Later it took on a more general meaning, not necessarily referring to the conduct of Joseph alone.
This cartoon published in 1950,Wasington Post was one of the first cartoon to have coined this term.
Name the term and what it meant?
